Adobe Ideas adds layers, VGA output


Adobe has released an update to its digital sketchbook app, Adobe Ideas, adding a new layers feature and support for external displays. Adobe Ideas 1.2 now allows users to create up to 10 drawing layers and a photo layer for each sketch; users can control order and opacity for each layer as well as moving, scaling and rotating layers. The new version also adds support for Apple’s Dock Connector to VGA adapter on the iPad, iPhone 4 and fourth-generation iPod touch enabling users to connect their device to an external monitor or projector and display sketch content in real-time. Additional enhancements include performance improvements to zooming and panning, the ability to customize the toolbar location and improved stroke smoothing while drawing. Adobe Ideas is a universal app and is available from the App Store as a free download.
